Huge Performance By Barczak At Northeast Regionals

MW Sophomore Takes 4th; Elfstrum, Weigel Also Notch Wins

S9sitelogoCongratulations to Monroe Woodbury sophomore Evan Barczak for taking 4th place in a loaded 138 pound weight class in the junior freestyle division at the 2015 Phil Portuese Northeast Regionals held at East Stroudsburg, PA.   After dropping a 12-6 decision in the second round to Wyoming Seminary’s Andrew Munn, Barczak reeled off 5 straight wins in the consies before losing to NYS D2 champion Jimmy Overhiser in his medal match.  One of the wins in his run through the wrestlebacks was a 10-0 tech fall victory over the aforementioned Munn.

Two other Section 9 wrestlers competed in the event including Barczak’s teammate Kendall Elfstrum, also a sophomore, who went 1-2 at 182 pounds for the day.  Elfstrum had the misfortune of drawing eventual champion Kyle Gentile from Pennridge, PA in the opening round.  In the senior division, Onteora grad and current University of Buffalo wrestler Austin Weigel went 4-2 at at 74 kg – a weight won by some kid named Kyle Dake!

Great job today men!
